About

I am a Researcher in the International Centre for Guidance Studies.  I recently completed my EdD and had my viva in September 2017.   I have been involved in numerous projects in the field of education where research was undertaken in settings including schools and higher education.    Example projects were funded by the Society for Research into Higher Education and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.  I have conducted research with pupils, parents, teachers and senior leadership team members.  I am interested in understanding the roles played by external individuals that conduct work in schools in England.  This has seen me carry out research with a wide range individuals involved in education including those from statutory agencies, community organisations, charities, employers and post-16 learning providers (e.g. training provider, college and university).   In higher education I have worked on research that has explored teaching pedagogies, graduate futures and university support in terms of widening participation.   I have undertaken numerous critical literature reviews.
